Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (20 U.S.C. 1681, et seq.) prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs or activities operated by recipients of federal financial assistance. Title IX protects students from sex discrimination (including sexual violence and sexual harassment) in programs or activities operated by educational institutions that receive federal funding.
NCCU's Sexual Harassment Policy was created in compliance with Title IX and describes prohibited conduct, establishes procedures for responding to reports of sexual misconduct, and sets forth resources available to students and employees. The policy applies to all members of the NCCU community, including students, faculty, staff, administrators, volunteers, vendors, independent contractors, and any individuals regularly or temporarily employed, studying, living, visiting, conducting business, or having any official capacity with the University. All individuals are covered by this policy, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
To report a violation of the Sexual Misconduct Policy:
- File a complaint with the Title IX Coordinator, or talk with a "responsible employee" about what happened (a responsible employee is an NCCU employee who has a duty to report sexual misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator). Title IX complaints may be submitted to TitleIX@nccu.edu or electronically using the Title IX Reporting Form.
- NCCU provides 24-hour assistance to those who have been affected by any form of sexual misconduct through the NCCU University Police Department (Dial ext. 6106 from a campus phone or 919-530-6106 from a non-campus phone).
